Daily Wire: The Democrats have continued their mission to root God out of the public square in the name of secularism by removing “so help me God” from the U.S. House of Representatives oath witnesses must take when testifying before several of the congressional committees, all of which are currently under Democratic control.
According to LifeSiteNews, the changes to the oaths have been slowly implemented ever since House Democrats announced the new policy in January, which immediately faced backlash.
“In January, a draft of a rules package from the Natural Resource Committee was leaked to the public showing ‘so help me God’ marked for deletion, replaced with the phrase ‘under penalty of law,'” reports the outlet.
Even Snopes admitted at the time that Democrats indeed had tried to take God out of the oaths. more …
Opinion: This story first broke on Fox News (here) on January 30 of this year:
“The draft shows that the House Committee on Natural Resources would ask witnesses to recite only, “Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?”
The rules proposal places the words “so help you God” in red brackets, indicating they are slated to be cut. The words “under penalty of law” are in red text, indicating that Democrats propose to add that phrasing to the oath.”
We spend a lot of time talking about the coming tribulation and its effect on the Jews who will have 144,000 Jewish preachers teaching the Gospel (Rev. 7:1-8), and two preaching in Jerusalem (Rev. 11:4).
But there is also a massive (unsaved) Gentile contingent that will be left behind when Jesus returns for His church (1 Thess. 4:16-18). Many will be stunned. Many will be church goers who substituted works for the free gift of salvation (Ephesians 2:8-9).
So what’s it going to be like for them?
“And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” Revelation 6:15-17
